20130312 preview alpha 5: http://devhost.xda-developers.com/9NP
- Synced to latest upstream (march-12)
- Fixed Alt/Shift keys
- added OTG patch from schverhagen repo
- cherry-picked a few more kernel commits from Schverhagen's ICS kernel
What's the difference between this official CM 10 build and the unofficial CM 10 4.2.2 build (SilverL developer)?
Is there any plan to 'merge' the two? I am currently using the CM 10 4.2.2 and have been quite pleased, but I just wanted to know the plans for both projects.
Thanks for any info, and welcome back TBalden!!
this is an older jellybean version, cm 10.0 not the cm-10.1.
Current plans are:
- officialization of the doubleshot cm-10 to nightly/weekly status (swapping out cm9 weeklies)
We can't merge the cm-10.1 stuff which kornyone managed to hack together so fine, because it would need to much legacy qcomm 8660 stuff merged into official repositories, and it would be highly likely that it wouldn't be accepted, as there's a working new msm8660 HAL (for other devices and newer kernel) which is as of now incompatible with our legacy kernel.
Short version: as of now , official cm for doubleshot can go as high as Cm-10 (android 4.1.2) because of the qcomm incompatibility obstacle in android 4.2.2.
Hey, I hate to muddy the forum any further, but this post raises a number of questions for me. There's a lot of good info in this post that I don't understand and I would be grateful if any of you guys could explain a few things. First off, how is it we have Android 4.2.2 in AOKP and CM varieties "unofficially" if the official CM 10.1 is unable to do that? Also, this business with the new HAL and "our" legacy kernel. Is the legacy kernel you mention the one in the official CM 10.0 or the one used to produce the two "unofficial" flavors of Jelly Bean 4.2.2 (or both)? What does the new HAL offer us, and why is it that we can't have an official CM 10.1 with the latest HAL and updated kernels (i.e. toss the legacy stuff)? Also, why am I seeing references to MSM 8260 as our chipset when I read info on CNET and Phone Arena and not MSM 8660, as you are calling it?
Thanks ahead of time for any replies.
